"The Girl Most Likely" was not only the end of an era of movie musicals, it was the very last musical made at RKO Studios, as well as one of the last ever made at that studio before RKO was sold and turned into DesiLu. This is a great little musical, and for me, Jane Powell's performance in it is second only to "Seven Brides" and "Royal Wedding" She really gives a good performance. Gower Champion's choreography is highlighted with the "Balboa" water/beach dance/song number and it's a classic! The "All the Colors of the Rainbow" sequence , filmed (supposedly) at Olvera Street in L.A. is a bit reminiscent of the dance number Gene Kelly did with the little beggar girl in "Anchors Aweigh" but livlier. Tommy Noonan is featured as her boyfriend until Cliff Robertson wins her heart. Noonan will be remembered as Judy Garland's bandleader-friend in "A Star is Born" three years earlier. Here he is a realtor, always on the move, a characteristic which is the basis for a song number,"Keeping Up with the Jones's" The opening sequence filmed on Balboa's old car ferry has a bit of historic nostalgia to it.
